It launches Sept. 12. © SonosThe One SL is powered by two amplifiers and includes Sonos Trueplay (adjusting audio output based on acoustics in the room) for enhanced sound quality. This is essentially the same technology inside the One, with less processing power since it doesn't have the microphones.

Sonos is letting people who own its oldest products trade them in for a more modern replacement. The new program offers a 30 percent discount to those who want to trade their Connect, Connect:Amp, ZP80, ZP90, ZP100, ZP120, or the first-generation Play:5 for something newer.
